My website updated

Reading Time: 1

I’ve finally had the chance to revisit my own website and update it.

I’ve used some very subtle CSS3 animations on the icons and buttons to highlight the calls-to-action in a way that it is obvious it will do something without it being too ‘in your face’.

I do like whitespace on websites so I’ve further improved each section of a page so the user flow is more seamless. The site is just as mobile responsive as it was before but the white space now makes it clearer and easier to view.

The top menu remains on the page as you navigate through the pages. It takes up little space and it again is just a simple thing that makes using the website that little bit easier.

Each page should be easier on the eye and easier to navigate. I’ve tried to keep my main calls-to-action in the same place on each page so again, each page should be familiar as you go from page to page.

I’ve just finished some updates to http://taylorgrown.co.uk/ which include new images, new gallery on their blog and updates to text on the website.

I’ve also been playing around with the styling on this blog today. I like it better than it was before.

http://www.torbayfishing.com has had lots of tweaks and new pages added over the last few days. I’ve positioned the social media icons in a clearer way and updated the styling on several parts of the site.

http://locomotionmarketing.co.uk has already been cached by Google and has jumped in the search engine listings as a result. The responsive design has also been picked up and it is now proudly displaying ‘mobile friendly’ in the search results when using Google on a mobile.
